Drivers should check conditions before setting off and not travel to the air show unless they have a ticket. The Duxford Air Show is advance tickets only. Anyone without a ticket should not attempt to travel to the event, as they will not be able to gain entry to the air show.

Highways England is working in partnership with IWM Duxford and local authorities to help get traffic to and from the event efficiently and safely and to keep traffic flowing. Anyone travelling through the area is advised to allow extra time for their journey, or to plan an alternative route or time. If you are travelling to the air show, please follow the AA signs rather than your own sat nav.

Keith Davies, Highways England Events planning officer for the East of England, said:

Although there won’t be any road closures, we expect the M11 at junction 10 to be much busier than normal throughout the weekend.

This air show attracts a large number of visitors so we strongly advise road users in the area to plan ahead and allow extra journey time in case of any delays.

The air show is advance tickets only so if you don’t have a ticket please do not travel to the air show.
